Show your support here. The other thread is still going. Not nice.

KeepingCalmAndPostingNicely Thu 07-Feb-13 07:55:59

I'm in. I love worra's response to the OP of that rather sorry little thread. I can't imagine being so annoyed by someone on a forum that I'd need to start such a stupid thread.

StickEmUp Thu 07-Feb-13 07:57:13

Im in too. Although this will go poof, I've seen these before.
I think she could be a diplomat. Really.

Sirzy Thu 07-Feb-13 07:58:56

I'm in she is normally the voice of reason in threads

Lovelygoldboots Thu 07-Feb-13 07:59:41

That thread is awful and the op sounds like an absolute weirdo. Yanbu, worra is never offensive and has given me advice in past.

thegreylady Thu 07-Feb-13 08:00:23

Poor Worra the other thread isn't funny.

YorkshireDeb Thu 07-Feb-13 08:04:15

I do find it funny though that the other op clearly expected people to agree with her & unknowingly created the longest post in the history of MN in support of worra. In my opinion she generally gives fair, honest opinions. Surely that's the whole point of this forum. X

ll31 Thu 07-Feb-13 08:05:28

Never posted in these types of threads but agree, worra l is one of those posterss where whether you agree or not, you always consider what she says cos its always reasonable

DoItToJulia Thu 07-Feb-13 08:06:30

Thanks ladies. I never thought I would be a MN rebel, but I can't stand this kind of bullying.

Altinkum Thu 07-Feb-13 08:07:30

What's the point of this thread, I and see one in supporting comment on the other thread.
It's nonsense as this is nonsense, I even think words has done the best thing to keep away, why bait a troll its not fun, as its all the same nonsense everyone sprouts.

YABU and childish.

nightswimmer Thu 07-Feb-13 08:08:08

Worra gives fantastic advice and shoots from the hip. She's one of those you'd notice. OP of the other thread, nobody will support you in your stupid trolling .

Altinkum Thu 07-Feb-13 08:08:22

Can't see not one un supportive comment on the other thread.

Feminine Thu 07-Feb-13 08:09:27

Its so childish.

Its to be expected on here. I don't think WL even cares.

But, why is it still there?

Feminine Thu 07-Feb-13 08:10:30

Not to be expected on MN( of course)

I'm talking about the internet/message boards in general.

DoItToJulia Thu 07-Feb-13 08:10:52

No on on the other thread is being unsupportive, but it might be nice to have a thread where a fellow MNetters isn't called a cunt in the title. That's all.

Feminine Thu 07-Feb-13 08:12:13

But this is continuing it julia

posts like this, also make MN seem a closed circle to newcomers too.

Like a silly private joke!

Altinkum Thu 07-Feb-13 08:13:30

I hope this goes as well.

YABU, I've seen far worse thread titles.

Dolallytats Thu 07-Feb-13 08:14:45

I'm sure your title should have been 'WorraLiberty, worra legend'!! grin

Isildur Thu 07-Feb-13 08:15:08

I harly think you can be described as a rebel OP, your opinion seems pretty mainstream.

There are loads of threads where no-one is being called a cunt in the title.

I seriously doubt the Worra was been wounded to the core by the other mad thread.

She doesn't strike me as a 'crying into her cornflakes' kind of gal.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:15:57

Why hasn't the other thread been deleted? shock

I often agree with Worra, definitely not a

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:16:33

c*

DoItToJulia Thu 07-Feb-13 08:16:59

Only a rebel as I am sure this too will be pulled. I just wanted an antidote thread.

Happy that my opinion in this case is mainstream.

Feminine. Good point. I don't want to continue it. Didn't think about that. Stupid.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:17:02

Oh ffs my keyboard won't let me post c**t

I agree that there's no need for this thread. The 'subject' of the other thread certainly didn't appear to feel bullied and threads which revolve around 'w is so lovely' always make me feel a bit queasy. As a wise poster frquently says 'it's just words on a screen'. We don't know each other. Not really necessary to go to the mattresses over very odd threads is it?

Feminine Thu 07-Feb-13 08:18:18

julia I think you were coming from a good place initially! smile

MrsDeVere Thu 07-Feb-13 08:22:06

There are not lots of threads where a MN poster is called a cunt confused

Lots where a public figure or an anonymous ex or traffic warden is.

But not a poster.

It's horrible and I would be pretty perturbed if I saw that about me.

If anything this thread may reassure a newbie rather than exclude them.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:24:34

I completely agree MrsDeVere and I don't think there are many posters who would just brush off such a nasty thread tbh so this is a nice alternative smile

Lovelygoldboots Thu 07-Feb-13 08:25:06

Can't see a problem with this thread, I am quite new and not found mn a closed circle. The problem is that the other thread should have been deleted much quicker than it was. And I think, despite the jokes about gin, that wasn't good enough on the part of mnhq. Nobody likes to be called a cunt.

Lovelygoldboots Thu 07-Feb-13 08:32:51

Not quicker than it was, deleted at the time (not woken up)

Feminine Thu 07-Feb-13 08:35:18

Cunt is used here so often that I don't think it has any meaning/value at all!

I personally don't like the ass licking that followed.

But I agree its not nice to be called one. Perhaps everyone should use it less eh?

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:36:54

Cunt is used by some people a lot on here, and for some it definitely holds its meaning.

wibblyjelly Thu 07-Feb-13 08:37:37

I'm on Team Worra!

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:37:40

Tbh it wouldn't matter what word was used, it was a personal attack.

MonaLotte Thu 07-Feb-13 08:38:38

I really don't understand why the other thread is still there. Have hq commented yet?

wibblyjelly Thu 07-Feb-13 08:40:41

Not yet. I've just reported it again.

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 08:41:19

Actually the thing that irritates me is the allegations of kiss assing afterwards.

When someone posts a shit thread like that most normal people recoil because they recognise that if someone posted that about them it would upset them.

So the human response is comfort.whether it be through joking to change the subject or comforting the target through reassurance that no, the whole world doesn't think they are a cunt.

That is a nice thing. A generous instinct. Why it gets sneered at as sucking up or some such guff is baffling to me.
But then I live in a world when some piece of shit thinks that writing a whole thread about another poster is fair. So I am pretty baffled anyway.

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 08:41:55

Unnecessary and arse licky IMO

Tanith Thu 07-Feb-13 08:42:35

I got the impression that Worra found it hilarious and wasn't taking it at all seriously. Not that I've waded all through it, I admit.

Still, if she needs hand-holding, mopping up, a shoulder to sob on, a hanky to borrow (like hell, she does grin), I'm there for her, too.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:42:43

Quite Pag!

Why is a nice thread 'arselicky'? confused

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 08:42:48

grin
Excellent x-post.

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 08:43:39

Pag that wasn't to you btw just to this thread.
Worra probably could t give a toss and she's not flipping dying just some prat has said something stupid about her.

magimedi Thu 07-Feb-13 08:43:45

^^ Agree with Pagwatch.

I am pretty new here & don't think this makes MN seem cliquey or quichey!

threesypeesy Thu 07-Feb-13 08:44:44

i really like worra.... she always gives great advice to people, one of the posters you pay attention too

was rather shocked at the other thread such a personel attack on someone!

Greythorne Thu 07-Feb-13 08:46:04

But the only idiot is the OP from the other thread. So support for worra has been amply demonstrated. We'll be at 1000 posts by elevenses.

This thread makes it seem like some of the other posters were in agreement, hence the need for a "support" thread. But that's not the case. Is it? Must admit I have not read every single one of the 700+ posts.

Top marks to worra for being so chilled about it. I think she is extraordinary. I would be quivering in my slippers if someone started a thread about me and called me a silly billy, let alone a cunt.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:47:11

I'm pretty sure peope think they would brush off a thread calling them a cunt - and incidently it's still going on this morning on another thread -in reality I think there are very few people who are able to completely shrug off a personal attack, so I would always err on the side of caution personally.

amillionyears Thu 07-Feb-13 08:47:18

I have never had a problem with her.

I expect Worra will be fine.

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 08:47:40

Original thread is supportive whilst being lighthearted.
This one is ott and pointless giving too much weight to what has actually happened.

Waits for someone to start a name calling thread about me.

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 08:47:58

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 08:49:53

Why is ledkr such a cunt? grin

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 08:51:00

There will be half a dozen threads in the next few hours grin

I was commenting on the whole situation Ledkr. I have only been on mn for a bit but have the royalty/ass kissing/sucking up thing several times on threads. It's sort of the way things like this go.

Isildur Thu 07-Feb-13 08:51:59

Well that's the thing. The other thread was full of people laughing at the OP, and if anyone posting there thought Worra was a cunt, it was in a nice sort of way. grin

800+ saying 'Worra isn't a cunt' without being at all arselicky, and Worra herself not taking it seriously at all.

This thread just leaves anyone without the heart to wade through the other one, thinking Worra is being 'bullied'.

amillionyears Thu 07-Feb-13 08:52:17

I am thinking though, if MNHQ doesnt turn up soon, there are going to be bunfights erupting on MN

Shes a bit of a twunt tbh and arse licking?! No thanks! I don't know where shes been grin

Fanjounchained Thu 07-Feb-13 08:58:21

Possibly having a blonde moment but I'm still trying to figure out what exactly Worra is supposed to have done to be such a c**t ?

Anyhoo, I don't see the point in getting upset by online comments anymore, used to get to me until I realised that the person being a tit to me online could be the very same person that held the door open for me or was helpful in the supermarket. Don't know why some folk have to take things so seriously, if you don't like someone's comments, give them a wide berth...

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 08:58:57

pickled thanks Hun grin notice nobody has stuck up for moi.
pag I thought you were an old timer!
I do see what you are saying but I'm a tough old bird so it just would bother me especially as nobody took it seriously.
I may be wrongly assuming that worra Would be the same.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 09:01:43

You cant win on here see.

If your popular you get called a royalty cunt

If you stick up for someone you are a arse lickery cunt.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 09:05:14

Ledkr your MIL made me. The cunt.

Feminine Thu 07-Feb-13 09:06:43

if after that silly and mean post was made, other posters chimed in and agreed that she was indeed a cunt...you can see it would/could be upsetting.

I've been called one on here. I lost no sleep.

I know if I was called one IRL it would hurt.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 09:09:09

Worra had her feet up watching filth about kavos rather than getting in a tizwas about it, good for her I say.

fromparistoberlin Thu 07-Feb-13 09:09:19

show your support?

One twatty posts, and many people have expressed their shock on the other thread

Its a MN AIBU OP, not Syria

focus on something real huh!

and no, I dont think it was very kind

ripsishere Thu 07-Feb-13 09:09:46

I'll support the worra legend crew. and my keyboard will let me type cunt, cunt cunt cunt in any way I want.

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 09:11:05

Ledkr is not a cunt.

I would have posted that quicker but, you know, bloody kids and their 'I need to go to school' bellyaching.

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 09:12:45

It's fine Fromparistoberlin. We are focussing on Ledkr not being a cunt now.
We keep these threads moving on without needing to be told that there is more important shit to worry about.

<<pats head>>

Fenton Thu 07-Feb-13 09:19:35

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 09:27:08

I am a cunt.
I embrace my cuntiness. Like Maryz.

<sneaky huh>

pigletmania Thu 07-Feb-13 09:28:08

This thread is a bit envy really, not that I have anything against worra because i absolutely don't. It kind of smacks cliquey trying hard to become liked by MN royalty. A bit like school playground goings on

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 09:28:42

And I'm howling at vallium's phone making her type c**t.

Mumsnet will be ruined if phones do that.

Julia, this is a nice thread, not a continuation of a fight, and I think it's important that newbies realise that while many of us disagree a lot of the time, it is never ok to start a thread specifically abusing one poster angry.

Lovelygoldboots Thu 07-Feb-13 09:33:22

If we all choose to be cunts then to be called a cunt would not be ab insult but merely a noun. ((possibly overthinking this))

DeepRedBetty Thu 07-Feb-13 09:34:27

Frankly I prefer Maryz's firemen to Terry's lunchbox

butterflyroom Thu 07-Feb-13 09:34:37

AllYoursBabooshka Thu 07-Feb-13 09:45:10

I think people take stuff like this far too seriously...

This isn't really a "Support Thread" because Worra doesn't need to be supported. We know she's not really devastated.

People are just taking an opportunity to have some fun mocking the other thread and at the same time say "We know your not really a cunt".

Morning all,

Firstly, huge apols for not getting to your reports sooner. That thread has now been deleted.

Technically, as this is a thread about a thread, we should delete. However, we're going to leave it as it is, unless it turns into a nasty thread about a thread.

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 09:50:48

piglet "It kind of smacks cliquey trying hard to become liked by MN royalty" - you don't think that's a dickheady thing to say? No?

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 09:50:54

Just people having a chat the same as essentially 99% of other threads in Chat.

I dont think Worra particularly needs a support thread but calling someone a cunt isnt particularly pleasant and I think the OP meant well.

Can someone explain why the PO are getting all thin-lipped and disapproving of this thread?

MsVestibule Thu 07-Feb-13 09:54:36

Nope I hadn't thought of that, but think you may be right <strokes chin reflectively>.

So Thunderstruck was Worra's sockpuppet but she used it far more cleverly than anybody has ever used one before. Way to raise your profile Worra, jolly well done.

WorriedMummy73 Thu 07-Feb-13 09:54:58

Seriously though, what the eff has been going on????

BabyRoger Thu 07-Feb-13 09:54:58

I seem to have missed everything. No idea about any other threads.

But anyway, I've just come on to say YANBU just because I always like Worra's posts (mostly). Often the voice of reason.

Anyway, as you were.

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:06:10

I agree GetOrf ...though I think you're being rather generous grin

Calling someone a cunt is the only way to guarantee a thread'll stay for a good 9 or 10 hours grin

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 10:08:15

22 minutes is very specific though. A bold call.

pigletmania Thu 07-Feb-13 10:15:44

Anyone?

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 10:20:04

Yours was just above mine, and I noticed it as it was particularly childish.

I don't agree with anyone who says this thread is full of cliquy people aspiring to be mumsnet royalty. Because it isn't.

And it wasn't dick-heady because I don't agree with it, it was dick-heady because it was, erm dick-heady.

And I don't mind whether anyone else agrees with me or not, I'm not a sycophant, and I don't post to get others to agree. I posted an opinion.

OwlBeThereForYou Thu 07-Feb-13 10:22:42

I may have missed the point completely, but I thought this was a jokey thread, light hearted and somewhere to chat, some of us were up way to long with that thread....anyway I only came here to announce how disappointed I am! Where the fuckity fuck is my deletion message sad you're going to say now that it's because I'm on my wanky iPhone and not the computer aren't you?!

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 10:23:27

Sorry teacher Pag blush

I'll stop being fighty <sits determinedly on hands>

pigletmania Thu 07-Feb-13 10:23:30

Same Mary, just opinions after all

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 10:23:45

Summary

Last night someone posted a thread calling Worra a cunt. No particular reason. A troll, a wanker, a shitstirrer - whatever.
The thread stayed up all night mostly with people going 'wtf. Why hasn't this been deleted'
Mnhq woke up late with a hangover and deleted this am.
A few spin off threads have bloomed as usual.

A storm in a gin glass.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 10:24:20

Owl yeah but if you scroll down someone copied and pasted it.

pictish I think worra had a spat with someone about a bike? who then started a thread entitled AIBU to think Worra is on here 24/7 and a Cunt.

Im being really kind with the spelling there too.

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 10:24:40

Mwahahahaha.
I am in charge. Fucking fabulous.
grin

[if only]

GetOrf Thu 07-Feb-13 10:25:28

Pictish some arsehole started a thread saying 'worraliberty is a cunt' - OP then disappeared, worraliberty came on and was very dismissive towards the op, and the thread filled up with people going 'wtf' and 'oooh deletion message' until it was deleted an hour ago.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 10:26:49

It was basically 1000 messages saying why is this thread still here so you didnt miss much!

TheSecondComing Thu 07-Feb-13 10:28:07

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Altinkum Thu 07-Feb-13 10:28:37

I came back and guessed as much that thread after thread was going to started... What's the count now....

pictish Thu 07-Feb-13 10:29:02

Oh. Ok. Well thank you! It all tallies in now. grin

I can get on with my day. Haha!

OwlBeThereForYou Thu 07-Feb-13 10:29:35

Thank you Pickled! Have found it, not sure i feel better tho....there are some parts of Terry Wogan that don't need to be seen hmm however its my own fault for wanting to be with the 'in' crowd....

schmoodles Thu 07-Feb-13 10:29:50

Weird and arse licky.

Plus I disagree with the OP

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:30:47

Pickled the funniest thing was we didn't even have a spat grin

Linky to my devastating comment that pushed said person over the edge

fromparistoberlin Thu 07-Feb-13 10:31:23

"And piglet. What a horrible, nasty, mean-spirited post.

hahahahah that made me wet myself. Yes that was cruelty personified! mean MEAN BAD piglet!!!!

Piglet I agree, but if people even dare suggest threads are cliquey/arelicky you get told off, its very odd IMO.

MN pack mentality rears it head in funny mysterious ways

WorriedMummy73 Thu 07-Feb-13 10:31:40

I think this whole situation has become like Inception - threads about threads about threads. And I found Inception confusing and nosebleed inducing! I may be heading that way now!

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 10:31:57

Maryz .
Fwiw I was responding to why people might not be joining in, rather than suggesting I don't think you, or anyone else, should have posted.

Although i have to say that suggesting that your post is invalid because no one agreed with you when complaining about cliques and royalty is ranking pretty high on my irony-o-meter.

manicbmc Thu 07-Feb-13 10:32:54

The original poster of the 'cunt' thread had started a thread, Worra had replied on there in a reasonable way. Then the OP popped up on other threads calling Worra a WAC for no apparent reason. Then that person started a thread with a title calling Worra a cunt.

It was a goady troll or someone with a huge chip on their shoulder and MN had been on the gin and let it run to 1000 posts before deleting it and posting a link to Terry Wogan's trouser package by way of recompense. confused.

schmoodles Thu 07-Feb-13 10:34:13

Hmm. I wonder who COULD have started the other thread?

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 10:34:27

It was far too early in the morning for that terry Wogan shot.

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 10:35:40

Very diplomatic Paggy [arf]

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:36:40

I think I'm being trolled by Terry Wogan

There, I said it.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 10:37:25

This school of thought that Worra started a thread about a bike in a communal area to act irrational prior to calling her own self a cunt in the hopes of having a higher profile on an anonymous website? Ummm I am not really buying it.

MikeOxardAndWellard Thu 07-Feb-13 10:38:08

That Wogan photo was hilarious! And the deletion message was well worth waiting for. Well done MNHQ.

worra You were very harsh with that comment. Obviously cuntish grin it was very close to a personal attack!

GetOrf Thu 07-Feb-13 10:40:40

I have seen that Terry Wogan picture loads of times, and had no idea it was about his willy. I just thought it was funny because it was just, well, funny because Terry Wogan's face is funny, a bit like Alan Partridge.

I had no idea it was about THAT. I don't even want to think about Terry having a willy. He should be all smooth down there, like Ken.

EllieArroway Thu 07-Feb-13 10:40:41

And I don't mind whether anyone else agrees with me or not, I'm not a sycophant, and I don't post to get others to agree. I posted an opinion

Yes - which is actually what Piglet was doing too. Telling her she should be ashamed of her opinion is presumptuous & patronising.

MN is heaving with sycophants & arselickers. It makes me cringe at times.

But Worra manifestly isn't a cunt and being called one is so spectacularly spiteful I think it's rather nice that people feel they want to redress the balance a bit.

Looking for the smoking thread mentioned earlier now because I want to see what she said about e-cigs

PhilMcAverty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:40:58

HOWLING at TSC being one of the PO.

At the risk of being called PO myself, whole threads about one particular poster are a bit cringe-worthy no matter who they are.

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:41:33

What are you trying to say Pickled? That I'm too thick to think of something like that or I wouldn't be allowed in a communal area unsupervised?

<< Goes for latter >>

EllieArroway Thu 07-Feb-13 10:42:01

I used to fancy Terry Wogan when I was 15 (I know, I know). I'd have had the vapours if I'd seen that picture back then.

DowntonTrout Thu 07-Feb-13 10:43:17

I liked the pic of Terry Wogan.

It made me laugh.

That is all.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 10:44:20

Ellie you are one sick lady.

Get hypnotised its amazing for fags. And you might be able to get Tezzas cock erased as well.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 10:45:20

Well to be honest worra I thought the post was a bit to well put together when looking at your normal moitherings.

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:45:23
WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:46:43

moitherings what a fantastic word!

A bit like foitherings but not as paternal...

MrsDeVere Thu 07-Feb-13 10:47:08

well can someone explain the fucking rules then?

Because if I am nice I am licking arse
If I disagree I am being a bully (or a fish or something)
If someone is horrible to me and respond I am also being a bully
If anyone stands up for me they are only doing it to be arse licky
If I stand up for someone I am being arse licky

I am not going to claim that I do not recognise any poster's names. But I only made a comment on here because I thought that last thread was particularly horrible. I do recognise the subject but I couldn't tell you what her views on bf v ff were or what threads she hangs out on.

I just thought I was being pleasant.

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 10:47:41

I'm wondering if fromparis and ellie are sycophantic and arse-lickey for agreeing with piglet confused

When are we allowed to agree with people without being cliquey and wanting to be royalty and when aren't we, just as a matter of interest?

Are there rooools? And if so, could someone explain them to me.

EllieArroway Thu 07-Feb-13 10:47:48

Pickled It's true <hanging my head>

Thanks for the link.

Isildur Thu 07-Feb-13 10:48:52

I don't like that Terry picture.

It's a bit like catching your Grandfather having a wank (not that my long-dead Grandfather would ever do that kind of thing).

Terry should confine himself to singing Christmas songs with Aled Jones.

No penisy stuff at all.

My eyes agre going 'lalala'.

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 10:49:00

x-posted with mrsdevere.

Sorry, that makes me arse-lickey I think. Maybe confused

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:50:17

A fish MrsDeVere?? grin

<< Sound of mind boggling >>

EllieArroway Thu 07-Feb-13 10:50:38

Don't miss the point, please MaryZ. It's not about whether it's areslickey or not - it's about people offering opinions and being told off for doing so.

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 10:52:34

OK, how about if we all smear our arses and each others with Marmite?

That'll cause a dilemma

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 10:55:15

But then the opinion is that if your of the other opinion you are a sycophant?

confused

Argh!

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 10:56:49

So how does that work?
When is a comment just a comment.
When is a comment a telling off.

If people are disagreeing them I hope I pay them both the respect of giving each view equal weight.
If I say 'I disagree.i think that is bollocks', when is that just a post and when is it a telling off?

havingastress Thu 07-Feb-13 10:57:15

Can someone please please update me as to what I've missed??!! The other thread has been deleted! Was someone being mean to Worra?! Please update me!

I've always thought Worra gave lovely advice smile

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 10:57:39

No, no, it's about people calling other people names (in this case cliquey royalty-aspirants), and being told off for doing so.

There is a very subtle difference.

And anyway, I'm always right. Always, always, always. I just don't understand why so many people don't just get that shock. It's very odd.

It was a big fish Worra. In a small pond or something. I didn't quite understand.

havingastress Thu 07-Feb-13 10:59:48

Sorry, just found the update on my six..

I don't get why the Terry Wogan photo though?! Still mystified?!

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 11:00:28

Havingastress

There is already at least one précis on this thread

EllieArroway Thu 07-Feb-13 11:01:36

Hang on.....

I don't personally think this thread is sycophantic. I think it's nice. I said so.

If I did think it was sycophantic I could (and maybe would) say that too.

Either way, we are entitled to express our opinions without being told we should be ashamed of ourselves like we are naughty Year 6s.

Maybe I'm just bitter though, because if someone posted that I was a cunt, it would be "Who? Meh".

EllieArroway Thu 07-Feb-13 11:04:14

"That is bollocks" is not the same as "You should be ashamed of yourself".

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 11:05:34

FFS Pagwatch

See this? ---> précis

I've just bee scratching my screen trying to remove the wotsit off the top of the 'e' blush

<< Dies at the shame of not remembering what the wotsit is called >>

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 11:05:35

I didn't tell her off for expressing an opinion, I commented on her name-calling. I only said "you should be ashamed" because had I said what I really thought I would have been deleted.

And I'm trying to be a good girl these days grin

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 11:06:19

*been

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 11:06:50

I wanted to say "that is bollocks". Maybe I should have, but that can be construed as a personal attack these days sad.

It is very difficult this posting stuff [sigh].

Worra, it's called showing off an acute accent.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 11:07:22

See? I knew you were not up to the high standards of that other OP. You cant fool me. Oh no.

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 11:07:24

Ellie
So is the answer to my question that you think a comment is a telling off if it has a certain tone?

I am not being argumentative. I am curious.
I didn't think the 'you get told off if you criticise royalty' was about tone.
I am trying to figure out why poster a saying 'this is arse likely royalty shit' is a comment while 'I thinkthat is bollocks and both unfair and untrue' is a telling off.

The reason I want to understand is because I think the 'royalty' stuff is utter shite. But I think people should be allowed to post it. And I should be allowed to disagree. Both posts are equal.
Which is why I don't understand the 'telling off' thing.

Does that make sense . At all?

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 11:08:59

X-post.

Ok. Thanks Ellie.
I don't think I agree. I think a telling off tone might just be what happens hen avoiding saying 'oh do fuck off' .
But thanks smile

Hullygully Thu 07-Feb-13 11:10:46

bum

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 11:11:06

yy, "oh do fuck off" was what I wanted to say.

But I would get a smack on the wrist, so I didn't.

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 11:13:16

In fact, the more I think about it, the more I think they need to change the definition of "personal attack".

I would much rather someone said "oh do fuck off" to me than "you should be ashamed" - the latter is a rather passive-aggressive way of saying the former, and isn't really nice, but they are leaving us with no choice.

If that makes sense? We are all learning to avoid personal attacks because we don't (generally) want our posts deleted, so we are all becoming more creative, and in some ways nastier sad.

I do like a good "oh do fuck off" - I miss it.

TuftyFinch Thu 07-Feb-13 11:17:59

... thank your lucky stars that you still have chips ...

EllieArroway Thu 07-Feb-13 11:18:47

See - I didn't think that Piglet was actually name calling, or not at least singling people out. Just that she thought there was a lot of arse-licking going on.

But - it's difficult, I agree. There's a fine line between disagreeing heartily and launching a personal attack. Not that I think MaryZ did that see, I'm a sycophant too but I don't think Piglet did either.

Personally, I stick to comments like "How fucking stupid" or "What a load of rubbish" rather than "Fuck off". I don't think I've been deleted for it yet.

almostanotherday Thu 07-Feb-13 11:19:18

Accent is the wotsit on top of an e

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 11:21:59

Accent...yes I knew that blush

<< Lies >>

We all have our different perceptions of MN and the posters therein and i think it's fair enough to comment on whatever we like, within Guidelines.

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 11:26:51

Very diplomatic Beer you fucker grin

Yes, Ellie, you are right. I think I'm a bit sensitive to the constant accusations of arse-licking, sycophanticism (is that a word), cliques and royalty. They seem to appear on almost a daily basis atm [sigh]

I hit crashingly and goadingly Undiplomatic on my first attempt, Maryz wink

AllYoursBabooshka Thu 07-Feb-13 11:30:18

There is something rather cathartic about "Do fuck off".

The fact that we are not allowed to say it anymore could be the reason why threads get so heated so quickly now days.

We put all of our rage into long posts trying and failing to be reasonable when all we need is a quick "Do fuck off"

<muses>

MrsDeVere Thu 07-Feb-13 12:40:50

OH FUCK YEAH! to the personal attack bollocky bollocks.

I do not think anyone should launch one at another poster but it gives me the rage when straightforward 'oh do fuck off' s are deleted but hideous passive aggressive shite stands.

Its one of the reasons I left NMs, never to return.

It means that if you are a the type who really wants to hurts someone and you are a bit of a coward, you can.
It also means that if you are dealing with someone you know is not as articulate as you , you can take advantage even if they are in the right.

I fucking hate passive aggression. Its my least favourite form of aggression.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 12:44:24

Last time I told someone to fuck off they criticised my spelling and poor grammar. I won't make that mistake again!

MrsDeVere Thu 07-Feb-13 12:46:59

I think the only time I have done a real, mega, proper PA on someone was a troll thread when i was quite new.

I spent ages being reasonable and then she pulled out a dead child and the adoption of a newborn baby out of her troll kit. I called her a fucking cunt.

I really did blush

ipswichwitch Thu 07-Feb-13 12:48:31

isn't this thread about a thread thing frowned upon? it is by me when i have no bleedin idea what you're all on about

SoWhatIfImWorkingClass Thu 07-Feb-13 12:48:32

"Because fuzzy wuzzy teddy bear" - Or whatever it went like. That cracked me up!

AllYoursBabooshka Thu 07-Feb-13 12:52:43

It doesn't count if it's a goady troll MrsD.

You were simply stating a fact rather than personally attacking.

thegreylady Thu 07-Feb-13 12:57:14

Which Terry Wogan photograph?
I glanced at the beginning of the offensive thread this morning and thought it was stupid and pointless so didnt read past first few posts.
The broken bicycle made me lose the will to read on.This thread has at least some good intent which has been sadly lacking in others.

LadyBeagleEyes Thu 07-Feb-13 13:13:23

Worra does the best puns ever.
<arse licky>

BegoniaBampot Thu 07-Feb-13 13:16:02

These threads make me heave slightly, only worth hanging around for the TW picture. Now after years or wondering, I know why folk keep going on about TW's cock. Result!

fromparistoberlin Thu 07-Feb-13 13:18:44

I have told people to fuck off

and then....I feel really bad afterwards

Its not worth it is say, not worth it

I think when MN enrages you to the stage you are hurling abuse, its time to LOG OFF

and go for a nice long walk and engage with RL

BarnYardCow Thu 07-Feb-13 13:18:50

When I grow up I want to be Worra She can usebold and I am still learning!

thebody Thu 07-Feb-13 13:22:28

Ffs stop arse licking.

Have to say though that I do remember worra making me literally laugh out loud on 2 occasions.

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 13:24:46

Fuck off.

Yep. It feels fine.

fromparistoberlin Thu 07-Feb-13 13:26:20

I cant do it

actually thats a lie, on a few occaisons I do

then I think

have I upset someone
do I know the whole story

gah

and I feel bad all evening

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 13:30:36

I agree with MrsDeVere and others.

If there is a hierarchy of shitty comments then fuck off is not top of mine.

I think fuck off is just a rude dismissal.
'I feel sorry for your children' and 'I have x problem. Is this really all you have to worry about'' and 'you sound deranged' are fucking nasty yet rarely deleted.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 13:34:31

I actually use it in quite a friendly way irl.

Insults do get a lot more sinister when you have to tread around the rules.

MN is a jungle some days. Sometimes I wonder how I keep from going under.

MrsDeVere Thu 07-Feb-13 13:34:56

What about 'it sounds like you have issues with black people/gay people <insert minority here>'

or the most annoying one of ALL 'in your MN, Boden wearing, mc bubble, not in the REAL world where I live'.

That forces one to lay out one's wc credentials and go all street on yo ass and that can be such a bore.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 13:35:02

paris I totally get that!

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 13:39:40

Uh huh huh huh Pickled.

Tbh I have worried about having possibly upset someone. But hasn't been when I have said fuck off. It has been if I was dismissive of their worries, or phrased something badly or misunderstood them.

If I think I have upset someone I go back to the thread and apologise.

ThatCrazyCephalopod Thu 07-Feb-13 13:45:38

But why doesn't the thread title say WorraLiberty. WorraLegend ?? Totally missed opportunity!

AllYoursBabooshka Thu 07-Feb-13 13:45:52

'I feel sorry for your children' - Yes, I find this much worse than "Fuck off".

No you don't feel sorry for the posters children, you're just being nasty.

That's a very "personal" attack and is, as you quite rightly said normally left un-deleted.

beautyfades Thu 07-Feb-13 13:48:57

can i be nosey an ask what this thread is about? or what thread it was about? got me wondering?..

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 13:50:50

Beauty fades

If you read this thread it explains what happened.

beautyfades Thu 07-Feb-13 17:15:09

yes, but got bored half way through, i get the gist!

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 17:21:04

In schools they will teach "the legend of worra" in history. In years to come they will dig up her bones and declare that she in fact is not a cunt grin

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 17:35:41

Ledkr grin

mrsbunnylove Thu 07-Feb-13 17:53:39

honestly, i've found the named poster to be unpleasant, as many mners are. but most are ok. so best just to ignore people who think they've made a name for themselves by hurting others.

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 17:54:53

mrsbunny tell it as it is sista

GetOrf Thu 07-Feb-13 17:56:30

Ignore them. But point out that they are unpleasant before ignoring confused

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 18:21:14

It's ok maryz as long as you stick with "the named poster" could be anyone, couldn't it? Ummmm. Subtle! grin

I missed other tgread

Worra is a great person

Fenton Thu 07-Feb-13 18:23:37

unpleasant, as many mners are

Not in my experience, most of them are just lovely. It's unfortunate that you have found otherwise mrsbunnylove.

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 18:26:48

Most mumsnetters are lovely. Most of the time mumsnet is great. Just occasionally it turns into cuntwatch.

Cuntwatch would be a great name change for me if I was really irritated.

GetOrf Thu 07-Feb-13 18:28:03

GetOrf Thu 07-Feb-13 18:31:58

You should have that namechange in your arsenal, so when a thread kicks off you can come on as Cuntwatch (in a cape) and GLARE at everyone and compel them to behave.

Fenton Thu 07-Feb-13 18:33:24

There seem to have been a glut of posters this week who don't like mumsnet and don't like posters or the way they post or what they eat for breakfast or anything.

Why do they stay, just to tell us do you think?

I see them as wearing the Internet version of the Red Shoes. Compelled to daaaance around the boards for ever and ever. But hating it.

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 18:41:37

Yeah go away if we are that unpleasant.
Today mn has helped me with a school issue massively and also at the moment helping me diagnose my poorly dd.
Not nasty at all.
Love the way worra has stayed quiet during cunt gate.
(Yeah alright I stole the idea from pag but still quite funny

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 18:47:17

Worra is supposed to be on here 24/7.

Shes letting herself down.

It's not nice when adults bully,

I love that someone started a support thread, Hopefully there are more nice people than not.

Portofino Thu 07-Feb-13 21:07:13

I am confused. I thought Worra started the other thread herself, as a joke, and that's why MN didn't delete it.

Boomerwang Thu 07-Feb-13 22:04:20

can someone link the pic to TW's dick please? I have to know what all the fuss is about.

No I didn't start the other thread Portofino, I have no idea who did but it was funny.

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Feb-13 22:20:07

You should use appropriate protection in approaching twc.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 22:46:51

And covered in tight brown corduroy.

Boomerwang Thu 07-Feb-13 22:54:42

Mgrg are you wanting to arrange an off board meeting? Because that would be Odd And Unusual.

TanteRose Tue 19-Feb-13 02:47:50

she is referring to another thread...no sure why she's posted on this one confused

Pagwatch Tue 19-Feb-13 08:43:32

Is someone really confused? And asking to take it outside (but presumeably during a lunch hour because he/she has a job)?

TandB Tue 19-Feb-13 08:47:42

mgrg - I was sympathetic to you on the other thread, but, in the nicest possible way, do get over it.

Worra said absolutely nothing wrong - nothing at all. Not even anything that could be interpreted as being snide.

And stop telling people to get a job. Not everyone can work/needs to work/chooses to use childcare and work/can find a job. You are being very rude.

Montybojangles Tue 19-Feb-13 08:51:26

Mgrg, seriously now, worra wasnt having any sort of a go at you. Why are you taking your anger out on her? This is just wierd now that you are going out of you way to find a post about worra and be nasty on it.
Have you thought about counselling maybe. I think perhaps you are still going through the stages of grieving (one of which is anger), and you maybe need some support. I doubt shouting on MN is going to help heal your heart.
I'm sorry for your loss, and sorry you feel that you are not getting support from some of your family. I hope things get better and easier for you soon.

Coconutty Tue 19-Feb-13 08:56:56

I have absolutely no idea what you lot are all going on about but would like to say that I like Worra and don't think she's a cunt at all.

WannabeWilloughby Tue 19-Feb-13 09:00:03

I don't know either coconutty...we've obvs missed summat. I am always amused by Worra though. Some fantastic posts.smile

Maryz Tue 19-Feb-13 09:00:20

I'm a bit confused at telling someone to get a job at 1.30 am - shouldn't he be saying "go to bed"?

<off to have a nosy at "other thread">

Maryz Tue 19-Feb-13 09:04:06

And fwiw I thought Worra was very nice on the other thread

[completely baffled]

Sugarice Tue 19-Feb-13 09:07:53

Worra's getting in the neck and is mgrg offering her outside? confused

thegreylady Tue 19-Feb-13 09:09:09

Me too-Worra was being supportive on the other thread! I think mrg misunderstood completely.

NopeStillNothing Tue 19-Feb-13 09:09:37

Mgrg, Some of us have been unable to return to our previous lower paid jobs because we did/do not have the luxury of free childcare. I'm very sorry if this is an innapropriate comment to make in light of the previous thread but you really are being quite rude. Once again I am sorry for your loss.

Bonemachine Tue 19-Feb-13 09:09:50

Mgrg you're telling everyone to get a job, I'm telling you to get a childminder and quit bitching at people on Mumsnet because you're squaring for a fight in real life but don't have the nerve.

firesidechat Tue 19-Feb-13 09:14:21

mgrg may have misunderstood, but no excuse for being so rude.

It's a shame because she would have had a huge amount of good will and sympathy on here for her situation.

catsmother Tue 19-Feb-13 09:24:38

Mgrg - I don't understand why you've got such a bee in your bonnet about Worraliberty. She said nothing untoward on the other thread - nothing. You've obviously sought out this thread to have another go .... until it came up at the top of AIBU just now I'd never seen it before.

Do you know what ... when my dad died I was FURIOUS. I remember going into town and seething, absolutely seething at all these people walking about, chatting, laughing, joking, as if nothing had happened when the most dreadful thing had happened to me. I wanted to slap them and scream what the hell they though they were doing when I was falling to pieces. Thing is - deep down I knew I was being irrational, my world might have changed but theirs hadn't, my loss was nothing to do with them and my distress at them behaving "normally" wasn't fair because they were doing nothing wrong.

It's very normal to think and feel irrationally when you lose someone - maybe especially so when it's far sooner than they "should" have gone. I felt irrational annoyance and sometimes "hatred" towards others for quite some time after my dad died. But ..... and I say this out of concern, you can't take out these feelings on other people. It strikes me that by snapping at, and hounding Worraliberty, you're actually doing - albeit on the internet - what I felt like doing all those years ago when I wanted to lash out. I never did - because quite rightly, people would have been hurt and upset had I done so, and at some point in the future, I'd have regretted it too when I could see things a little more clearly and cope with my loss a little better.

You really need to stop this thing with Worra. It's pointless and won't make you feel any better I can guarantee. In fact you're more likely to bring criticism down upon you and less likely to attract sympathy at a time when you need it most if you attack others with no good reason. That's not to say that people don't appreciate how much of a blow losing your mum is - but they're not going to want to help if you behave irrationally. If you want to talk about your mum, what she meant to you, how much you miss her, how you feel frightened at life without her and so on then I'm sure lots of members would hold your hand - maybe post on the bereavement board ? But don't lash out where it's not due, you'll end up isolating yourself.

thebody Tue 19-Feb-13 09:30:56

I have just read the other post and suspect the op is in a complete red mist rage at everyone but again I can't see why she picked on Worra.

I hope she sorts her self out emotionally and practically speaking she needs a cm.. I think for knows this but instead of posting on bereavement thread she choose AIBU which was a silly mistake.

Worra is tough and always sensible, she will be fine.

Coconutty Tue 19-Feb-13 09:32:10

Ah, okay I have now caught up.

Really Mrgr, there was nothing off at all with Worra's post. Are you speaking to anyone in RL about your recent loss?

Buzzardbird Tue 19-Feb-13 09:43:55

I think it was probably a mis-understanding of the acronym. I struggle with them sometimes. YADNBU could have been mistaken for...hmm
